What do Chemical Engineers do?
Chemical engineers apply the principles of chemistry, biology, physics, and math to solve problems that involve the production or use of chemicals, fuel, drugs, food, and many other products. They design processes and equipment for large-scale safe and sustainable manufacturing, plan and test methods of manufacturing products and treating byproducts, and supervise production.

Department experimental environments range from ultrahigh vacuum to extreme static pressures, from liquid helium to refractory melting temperatures. Species include electrons, simple molecules, salts, detergents, polymers, semi-conductors, and bacteria. Analyses range from the distribution of aqueous solutes in porous electrodes to the complex reaction mechanisms in thin-film deposition.
